Divorce and migration

Migration, which in this context refers to an individual living in one state for a year and then in a different one the next year, has been slowing. In fact, Americans are relocating to different states at only half the rate they did 50 years ago. Georgia residents may want to know that divorce and child custody matters have been contributing factors in the decrease of migration.

Deciding whether to keep or sell the marital home

When a Georgia couple is married, owning a home can be a dream. After a couple goes through a divorce, the same home that they worked hard to buy may end up feeling like a burden. Not only is it complicated to decide which person gets to stay in the marital home after a divorce, staying in the marital home can be a great challenge for a single person.

Establishing paternity after a child's birth

When a married woman gives birth in Georgia, there is a legal presumption that the woman's husband is her child's father. On the other hand, a child that is born to an unmarried mother does not automatically have a father in the eyes of the law. Unmarried parents must legally establish paternity for their child so that the child can receive the legal benefits of having a father.
